20 Steps from Home

I was inspired today while listening to the photography.ca Podcast #83.  Marko the host was sharing an idea submitted by one of his listeners.  The idea was to do a photo walk but limit it to 20 steps from your door.  As I was listening I thought how great it would be to do this mini photo walk with my girls.  Upon getting home I shared my idea and right away they were excited.  Jaelie my youngest (3) was upset at first, since she did not have a camera of her own yet.  So I explained that she did have a camera and I presented her with my old Canon S400, then she was very excited.  Teagan has been taking photos for a number of years now even though she just turned six, but was also very keen to go.  Teagan uses my current pocket camera, the Canon SD870IS. We rounded up our gear and headed out the door.  I was excited too as their energy and creative use of the camera was so much fun to see.  We had about half an hour before dinnertime and took full advantage of it.  We stayed within the 20 steps (maybe giant steps) and took lots of pictures from all different angles.  (more…)
